11 Juin 2018

On Canada and the summit: "It has worked out to be so wonderful".

Yet after leaving the summit, Trump tweeted that he would instruct USA officials not to endorse the G-7 statement, after objecting to comments from summit host Trudeau. -Canada border. Trudeau told reporters that imposing retaliatory measures "is not something I relish doing" but that he wouldn't hesitate to do so because "I will always protect Canadian workers and Canadian interests". "We're not looking to play games", Trump said. "He did a great disservice to the whole G7".

Navarro, the Trump trade adviser, said his harsh assessment of what "bad faith" Trudeau did with "that stunt press conference" on Saturday "comes right from Air Force One".

Alongside the G7 countries, India also came for a tongue lashing and Trump even threatened to cut trade ties with countries who are "being unfair on trade".

"I would say that the G8 is a more meaningful group than the G7, absolutely", Trump said.

"We are convinced that a modernization is perfectly possible, we are convinced that common sense will triumph", she said.

"If they retaliate, they're making a mistake", he added.

Those tweets also centered on trade.

"He did him a favor", Navarro said.

The ambassadors went on to call Trump's new tariffs on imports a significant step in a "protectionist direction" and concluded by calling for the two economies to "focus on what benefits us both".

White House aide Larry Kudlow tells CNN's "State of the Union" says Trudeau has done a "great disservice" to the G-7 by saying Canada had to stand up for itself and that the US was responsible for the problem with tariffs.

Trump's personal attack on Trudeau is unprecedented in the countries' longstanding relationship.

But Mr Trudeau said the leaders had "rolled up our sleeves" and settled on language they could agree to on a broad range of issues. The U.S. isn't expected to join separate agreements for cleaner oceans or combating climate change, which the other six nations will sign, Merkel said. I think they are starting to be committed to a much more fair trade situation for the United States, because it has been treated very, very unfairly....

Trump had bilateral meetings on Friday with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron.

On the North American free-trade negotiations, Mr. Trump said he proposed a bilateral deal to Mr. Trudeau, an idea the prime minister rejected.

"In a matter of seconds, you can destroy trust with 280 Twitter characters", the German foreign minister added. A subsequent visit in April this year warranted only a working lunch for the German leader, several days after fellow European Union leader Macron got the full, formal state dinner treatment from Trump. John McCain and ex-FBI director James Comey - who Trump unceremoniously fired previous year - took to Twitter to offer their support.

"To our allies: bipartisan majorities of Americans remain pro-free trade, pro-globalization & supportive of alliances based on 70 years of shared values", McCain wrote. "Americans stand with you, even if our president doesn't". Speaking at a post-summit press conference, Trudeau acknowledged that there were major differences with Trump.

"I think it would be an asset to have Russian Federation back in, I think it would be good for the world, I think it would be good for Russian Federation, I think it would be good for the United States, I think it would be good for all the countries of the current G7", he said.

Correction: June 10, 2018 12:00 am - The original version of this article said Trump was scheduled to meet Kim on Monday.
